Old Fashioned Date Bread - I have made this many times and it's always delicious! I skip the nuts because of an allergy in the family and it is still good. Especially with a nice, hot cup of coffee in the morning. Yum! Replaced white flour with white whole wheat for a healthier version.
This Date Loaf has been a favorite in the Duncan family for years and was used frequently during World War II. “The keeping qualities of this loaf are excellent,” writes Mrs. Duncan. “In fact, it is better when baked 4 to 6 weeks ahead of the holidays as it seems to ripen with age. This loaf packs well as it is firm and chock full of goodies. It doesn’t crumble easily. For home use, the loaf can be stored in a cool dry place in a metal can until used.”
